Osbourne Backs Taiwan's Un Bid
Rocker Ozzy Osbourne is lending his support to a Taiwanese band campaigning for the country's entry into the United Nations.
The group, named ChthoniC, will use its links to the former Black Sabbath frontman to promote Taiwan's campaign of obtaining membership to the world body.
The band will travel to at least 80 cities in Canada, Germany, Britain and the United States to further their cause - with Osbourne setting up 20 of the U.S. gigs and paying a proportion of the transport costs.
Singer Freddy Lim says, "I'm not for any political party, but I'm for my poor country's joining the United Nations."
